Virat Kohli expresses his admiration and attachment to the IPL franchise Royal Challengers Bangalore during a live session with AB de Villiers.
The Indian skipper has been a part of Royal Challengers Bangalore since the beginning. Therefore, to him RCB is not just a team but an emotion. He says that he has been a part of the team for 13 years now and as long as he plays IPL, he will always be a part of Royal Challengers Bangalore.
Virat Kohli talks about how each of the seasons brought him closer the franchise. In fact, AB de Villiers pitches in to say that the first time he became a part of RCB, he wasn’t sure what it will be like to play with Kohli.
However, as time passed, Villiers realised that Virat Kohli is in fact a great human being. That’s when the two of them talk about how what the audience sees on the screen does not truly reflect the type of person a player is.
AB de Villiers has been a part of the team for 9 years now. The two of them have had a great partnership both on-field and off-field. While Kohli says he will never leave RCB, Villiers points out that to stay in the team every players needs to score.
Both Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers discuss how the introduction of Indian Premier League has helped change the connection between international players. They believe that IPL has had a massive impact on the way players respect each other.
From a fan’s perspective, this is something that everyone should agree upon. Much of the bitterness has ceased to exist after players from different national teams were put together in one team.
Finally, both Virat Kohli and Villiers are hopeful that IPL 2020 will move forward once the Coronavirus threat passes.
